We recently had the pleasure of welcoming Rebecca Nottingham (Deputy Editor) & Tara Ridge (Sales & Marketing Manager) from KBB Review (www.kbbreview.com) to our Head Office in Oldham, to give them a tour of our facilities and show them what our team has been up to recently.
As well as being able to interview our Managing Director Keith Wardrope about HPP, the current market and his predictions for the future following Brexit, we were pleased to show the duo some of our latest and greatest developments, which we're pretty proud of to say the least.
Taking Rebecca and Tara around the site, we showed them how the company and our manufacturing facility has evolved over recent years.
This involved showing them around some of the warehouses which have recently been constructed or newly adapted on site; our brand new automated picking line for our fixings and fastenings department; our vast warehousing facility for Avanti stock doors, and the newest development which houses our outstanding new Homag nesting routers and overnight, fully automated storage facility, which introduces some significant efficiencies into our business.
The team were pretty impressed to say the least, and got a real feel for not only our strengths, but the great working environment that HPP has become so well known for.
After touring our 200,000 square foot site and demonstrating our machinery and warehousing facilities, it was time for a much-needed coffee break and catch up to summarise the day. Here we were able to showcase the clever systems our team have built over the years to ensure each project runs smoothly, on time and on budget.
We demonstrated our online ordering and delivery tracking systems, showing how a customer can keep up-to-date with their order electronically from the initial quote stage, right through to final delivery and invoicing.
We feel it's safe to say the KBB Review team were suitably impressed with how HPP has developed in our 25 years of existence, and seemed excited to hear about our future plans too.
